Everyone has at least one article in them, but most of them remain unwritten. On this interactive day, you’ll be given all the tools necessary to write for publication. Accessing ideas and pitching them to editors, research and structure will be discussed, as well as specialist areas of features like reviews, profiles, and first-person pieces. There will be exercises to help you write a fluent feature article with a punchy introduction and conclusion and you’ll also have the chance to practice interviewing skills.
